How can I schedule an appointment? All routine eye exams are by appointment only and do not require a referral. These appointments may be made by contacting the appointment line or at tricareoncline.com. Acute problems are seen on a walk-in basis and should call the appointment desk to be connected directly to the clinic.
What should I bring to my appointment? For routine eye exams, patients should bring in their current prescription glasses or a copy of their old prescription. Patients coming in for a contact lens prescription update should wear their current contact lenses to the appointment. They should also provide a copy of the current contact lens prescription, or bring in the contact lens boxes.
